Question about 1988 Chrysler New Yorker

2 Answers

Stalling out ~ over heating ~ no A/C

I pray someone out there can help us. We are stuck in West VA an want to go home. To make a very long story short the mechanic can't guarantee that replacing the fuel pump will fix the problem. At this point, I'd like to feel safe driving driving back home ~ and not keep having to pay for tows & having to rely on total strangers for help. This '88 Chrysler New Yorker has only been sitting since March, only a few months. When we got in to start it up. it kept stalling out. we put a gas can of gas in the car. reved up the engine for a while. then we managed to drive for a little while. we check all the belts, all ... the fuel filter & the vacuum hose has been replaced. We've put gas treatment in the tank...sprayed some carb cleaner. rewired the fan to cool down the radar so now that seems to of solved that issue. but it's still caughing & choking and stalling out sometimes. The A/C is not working either but we feel that is a seperate challenge in it self. Compresure maybe, Who knows ~ I'll drive in the heat at this point... I just want to know what to fix, so we can go home. 9:30pm Wed. June 11,'08 Thank You So very much 4 your help. God Bless you, Diane

I had a later model new yorker ... 1994 i think. that did something similar. after engine heated up, it would stall as i came to a stop. then wouldnt start until the engine cooled off. It turned out to be the crankshaft position sensor. hopefully this can help someone, as i am a little late for diane, :( sorry

Hi, I just had the very same situation on a '90 New Yorker. The fuel pump has gone bad in your car, have it replace and that should take care of it. As for the A/C, yes, that could be a different challenge. Don't let the fuel level get below 1/8 th of a tank. Fuel is what keeps the fuel pump cool.

Have to rev engine to 1500 rpm's to get the transmission to go into low gear, will not shift into 2nd gear or any higher gear goes right into reverse in low rpms, was fine prior to this had just driven7...

Thats not good. Usually if you are having to rev the engine the line pressure is really low. either the pump is going bad or your have a huge leak somewhere. If reverse works fine without revving then it isn't the main pump.
Long story short someone is going to have to get pretty dirty. The transmission will likely need rebuilt. You might have someone check the valvebody just to make sure something isn't stuck. A look at the pan will give a good idea how much wear is on the rest of the transmission.

I have a 99 grand prix i have replaced the power window switch twice now and it has started to smoke and stops working how can i find out if it has a short?

It could be the power window motor itself is drawing too much current from being worn out, which cause switch & wiring to heat up, but by rights, a fuse should have blown unless someone installed a higher amperage fuse than what recommended. have you owned it since new? Also, try spraying silicone spray down the side of the felt tracks that the window slides up & down in, to ease the load a bit on the motor. If it keeps doing it, you may end up replacing motor, but have a mechanic or someone with an amp gauge, check the draw when operating & that will tell the story if replacement is needed.

Push button 4wd not working

It sounds like someone has changed into 4wd at speed and broken the internals of the system. Check the relays and fuses first but it sounds more serious than that. If it drives in 2wd put it in reverse an circle listen for any undue noises.
